The low fuel light uses a different switch (incorporated in the same sender unit) and wire then the fuel gauge. It is a green-orange wire going from the sender to the low fuel module and a lightgreen-orange wire from the module to the binnacle warning light. If either is loose or damaged and makes contact with ground, the low fuel light will remain on.

Have you tried shaking or re-seating the "low fuel delay module"? It's under the bonnet (aft "relay", right hand side of the relay cluster, I think). Mine is red.

Good Evening ,

 

thank you both !

 

@ Quavion : Thanks for the reminder - the last thing i do on the Esprit was taking out the Relais Bracket under the front Bonnet 

for welding because it was broken. I think i  didnt put it right back !  Its worth a check at the Weekend !

 

Kind regards 

 

Harald
